Halloween is in the air, and whether it's on the mind already or not, death is beginning to decorate our daily lives. A celebration of the Day of the Dead brings about a feeling of energetic darkness. Although a few years old, this official video for Ital Tek's "Babel" emanates an eerie beauty and a sound that fits with the season.
Brighton based Alan Myson, monikered iTAL tEK, released "Babel" on Midnight Colour in the summer of 2010. The first time I heard the track a couple years ago was also the first time I saw the music video; little did I know I was in for a hypnotizing experience. Mastering melodic electronica, the chopped undefined vocals and minimal sounds can take a car ride home in the dark and transform it into perhaps an onset of a beautiful nightmare, and the psychedelic glowing body paint of the dancer reminds me of a tribal demon. Not only is the production and composition of this video impeccable, but her stunning dancing and aura makes it hard to peel your eyes from the screen.
